Brendon Bouzard lived in the scary house at the end of the street. Raised by compulsive hoarders in the dark shadow of the Texas Hill Country, he grew up idolizing the beasts and baddies of his local video store’s 49-cent aisle.
Today he invokes the icons of his Southern Gothic youth through dark, noir- and horror-tinged stories about complex people on the margins: true believers and inveterate liars, desperate youth and bloodthirsty monsters.
He received an MFA from Columbia University, where his 1960s teen mystery VIOLET received Faculty Honors at the Columbia University Film Festival Screenwriting Competition. His pilot PERSONAL DEMONS was recently named to the 2019 Columbia Blue List, and his neo-noir feature PIXIE is currently in development at Corporate Witchcraft.
